Today I decided to determine the top speed of my FLU419. I found a straight and level road with 4 lanes. Wide open it topped out at 49 mph. I read somewhere that the spec for the FLU was a top speed of 50 mph. I can't remember where I read that. One thing I've been curious about is why there is such a large gap in gear ratios between 3rd and 4th gears.

The only time I saw a CEE on the treeets was when the Engineers drove from the motor pool to the training area, 2-3 klicks away. Otherwise, up on the low boy! Down range was different. The boys and girls drove everything like they just stole it.

Hello, I don’t mean to post this in the wrong place if I’m doing it. New to this on here. My time is very limited, I work 12-14hrs a day on most days. And don’t have time to scroll through everything. Some of you may know I have a SEE and HMMH going on 4 years. Can some please tell me how to properly engage the suspension lock out system on my HMMH? I move my scissor lift around frequently and it would be so nice if it worked. Thanks again.

The actual midwest, NM.
I haven't locked mine out in a long time, since I feel that touchy loads are better moved with the suspension working. At least on less than flat ground.
But as I recall, push the clutch in and pull (or push?) the yellow button behind the passenger seat.

What I don't remember is if you have to hold the button, or keep the clutch pedal down, until the suspension has been sucked all the way down.

I really worked my SEE hard today. I spent 7 hours digging ditches on the side of the road on my property. The road goes up the mountain about a 1/2 mile and is very curvy and very steep. Every time I would dig a few feet, I would have to move the SEE to start again. That thing will really dig! I found out one thing today that I didn't know. The rocker switch on the rear for raising and lowering the loader is hooked up backwards. You lower by pushing the UP button and raise by pushing the down button. Something else to fix when I get time. Buying the SEE has turned out to be a very good decision. I have had minimal problems and it has proven to be very useful. Now that I have insurance on it, I can drive it to town for fuel.

Here is ALL kinds of stuff in the ground. Things that go boom.


Funny you mention that:

- An article in the local paper here about some your kids (like 9-10 years old), recently digging up some black powder Civil War ordnance


Nobody got hurt (my favorite kind of story). The Mom (understandably) freaked a bit. Mom's are smart enough to do that. The Dad I think just kind of said "Wow!"

Let me see if I can find that...
